Karrie,

You are a God send! Thanks. I feel like I have a newborn child. Ha. Every little change in her behavior has me worried and concerned that something might be wrong.

Especially when it comes to eating. I did get her to eat a little bell pepper and drink a little water that I dropped on her.

What about her insects is she eating those? Did you replace the coil w/ what was recommended?

I don’t have a coil, got the long T5 fluorescent bulb. Is that what you mean? I have it on top. I am concerned about putting the the T5 inside and it being too close to her. Thoughts?

If your screen is fine mesh like a screen door it will need to go into the tank--- approx 12-15 inches from basking decor-- if it's a wide holed like a dime it can stay on top basking distance 8-10 inches
